  1. About

Board and TAG

CaLP is governed by a Board of up to 13 individuals drawn from our membership, who guide its strategy and work. The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) supports the technical direction of CaLP and provides guidance and technical leadership to the membership and the community of practice.

CaLP is looking for new Board members

To apply to join the Board you must be working with an organisation that is currently a member of CaLP or be an individual expert who is a member of CaLP.

All applications are welcome but in order to reflect the breadth of the CaLP membership we would particularly welcome applications from people who work with the following types of member organisations:

  • National NGOs
  • Donors

We are committed to ensuring diversity and encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.

In order to complement the existing Board membership, we particularly welcome applications from people who can contribute time, thought and experience in any of the following areas:

  • Network / systems thinking and development
  • Knowledge management and research
  • Communications
  • Human Resources
  • Capacity building, in particular face to face and on-line training
  • Management of membership networks

People without a cash background are welcome to apply – as the use of cash transfers is pan organisational and this needs to be better represented in the CaLP Board
